If you're trying to eat healthier and lose some pounds, you know by now that those starchy breads and carbs aren't going to help you achieve that goal.
But man do we love them. Why do the things that taste so damn good have to be so damn bad for you?
And sometimes I just want CRUSTY goodness without guilt.
That's where this delicious, no guilt bruschetta comes into play.
135 calories per serving (one half of a round with toppings) -and they are calories that count because they're good for you..
Village Hearth Italian Herb & Olive Oil Slender Rounds (2 halves)
1/2 c. Trader Giotto's Bruschetta (found @ Trader Joe's)
2 t. extra virgin olive oil
1 t. minced garlic
2 T. shredded parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Mix the olive oil and minced garlic. Warm in microwave for 15-30 seconds. Spread 1 t. of oil on each half of the slender round. Top each half of round with 1/4 c. bruschetta and 1 T. of parmesan. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until crispy and cheese is melted.
This week is our last full week of school and I only have 3 working days left until summer. I hope you'll visit me often here at Sunday Baker because I will be posting quite a bit. I really do love interacting with you and reading your comments and emails!
And because it's so simple and good I have to share one of my favorite treats:
I'm not a huge ice cream lover, but I have always just absolutely loved vanilla ice cream mixed with peanut butter. This version is healthier and still so delicious. Oh man!
--What is your favorite kind of ice cream? Do you add things in or eat it plain?
--Are you eating healthier and working out? If so, how are you progressing?
